and just like that, it's the middle of April. how on earth is that even possible?! i've always heard people say that life goes by faster and faster the older you's totally true. i don't know if it's because i have more things going on in my life or because i'm not living in accordance to an academic calendar, but time does seem to be flying. 

i'm reminded of just how quickly it's happening each time i receive my monthly Julep Maven box. it always catches me by surprise because i can't believe another month has gone by. this month's box came just in time for some sunshine and Spring-like weather. 

i received two nail colors and blush. Caitlin is a bright pink with a shimmer, which isn't usually my favorite but i'll definitely give it a try! Mariska is a tangerine orange with a shimmer, as well. i'm not typically an orange nail polish wearer, so i'm thinking this one will go in my 'gifts to give' box for a friend's birthday or special occasion. 

i received the glow pore minimizing blush in peach bellini and it's beautiful! i tend to go for pinker blushes, but really like the peachy coral shade of this one. i think it will be a great option for spring and summer to give my cheeks just a subtle glow. 

are you a Julep Maven? what did you think of your box this month?
